no cause for bliooting the defenceless in

a barbarous assassination, ami It has been

Jnokson, MJse., Dec. 12. A man who
claims to have been a witness gives the
following details of the lynching, twenty
miles from Wesson, this State, ot the
negro Charles Lewis, wlio on Wednesday
last assaulted the handKime wife of Brown
Smith, a Lawrence county farmer, and
then brained her and her five children
with a club:
The murderer fled, and the corpses lay
on the hall floor several hours before being
discovered by Smith. He routed the neigh
bors, and learning the name of the mur
derer, from one of the children who sur
vived Its teirlblc wounds a short time, the
hunt for Lew Is vv as begun. Being found and
charged with the crime he denied it stout

lecting him (torn a crowd of negroes. A
mob of neailyone thousand men had gather
ed. Most ot the ciowd demanded that the
prisoner be strung up w Ithout delay. Others
wanted to burn him at the stake, but it
was finally decided to let him live one
rnoic day and have a preliminary trial.
State Senator Weathersby, Rev. Dr.
Drummoud and others pleaded that the
law be permitted to take Its course. Tlie
erowd began to waver, when all of a
sudden a long, tall backwoods woman
burstinto the circle and demanded:
"Do you call yourselv es meu Have you

of three counties, do your duty. Tie the
varmint to tl tree, pile the knots of fat

200 men started on a run, dragging him fj
a nearby tree. 1 he rope was throw u over
a limb and the negro placed on a horse.
A bharp cut caused the animal to Jump

so that Lewis' feet rested on tee ground

to L A. W. Wfleinlg,.
New York, Deo. 12. The six-day bioycle
riders who finished thplr long fturncy In
Mndison Square Garden last night en
joyed a much-needed rc,t today, and to
night they did not show tlie Jgns of the
terrible strain. Despite sensational re
ports that tev eral or the riders had become
insane or had been carried half dead to
hospitals, the fact remains that not one ot
them was unable to eat Heartily and take
a short walk hi the afternoon-
Miller, the winner of tbo contest, was In
such good shape when in left the Garden
that he slept touudly IiK-five hours. He
will receive $1,300 in pur-e money nnd
about $500 more in bonuses.

that he riept for seven hours.
Sohiuueer wa alK In, good condition
when ho awoke atter a good night's rest.
Hale, arter eight hour sleep, sat up in
bed and read the papers: "I knew the
track was short," he stud, "but that docs

formance." Waller and Pierce were out on the street
Pierce condemned tlie persons who cir
culated the report that ' was out of his

The managers of the ru il)3WW,ha track

neer this morning. The., founCL it to be
short, but refused to giv out any state
ments until tomorrow. Then the riders
will receive, in addition w their money,
their official records, computed ou the
correct measurement of tlie track.
C W. Ashlnger, who built the courtc, and
swore in an affidavit that It was correct
in length, being 086 feet, 7 inches, a
mitted today that he had made a nthnnk.
Ho contends, however, that the track was
ot correct measurement uiu Thanksgiving
night, when Michael and Starbuck had
their race. Pince that? time alteratioiss
were necessary. As It now stands all
the records by short distance men during
the present week will not be accepted by
the L. A, W., and there will be n pretty
rigid investigation before the revised long
distance figures are pronounced official.
The shortness of the track places the
L. A. W. officials, who had Charge ot
things, in a somewhat embarrassing po
sition. The probability of holding another 142
hour race in tills city is quite remote. It
is suggested that long distance contests,
should be limited to 1UH hours o'f riding In
siv days, that the men should be com
pelled to rest about fceven hours out of
the twenty-four, and th$lr number limited
